cleverDome, Inc.™, a B-Corporation that provides a community-driven solution to protect confidential consumer information by taking that information “Under the Dome”TM (i.e., secure and off the open Internet), while at the T3 Technology Conference 2018 for financial services enterprises in Las Vegas this week shared information about the growth of its commercial launch, which (un-coincidentally) occurred twelve months ago while at a special press briefing held October 30, 2017 at the T3 Technology Conference for financial services enterprises. cleverDome’s focus for the past twelve months has been to bring software service vendors, broker/dealers, registered investment advisers and financial advisers “Under the Dome.” cleverDome participants include United Planners, Geneos, Redtail, Orion Advisor Services, Riskalyze, Entreda, FCI, Workplace by OS33, 3PAS and Netfoundry.

The call to action continues to be: “Get Under the Dome™!
“Keeping personal data of consumers safe with a fully secure network, has been a great challenge across the financial services spectrum. We have created a community-based platform to protect confidential client information in the cloud, under the Dome,” said Alan Gleghorn, newly appointed president of cleverDome, who has been brought on to build out the cleverDome team and bring new members into this unique financial services industry consortium. “We have now changed the game with a highly effective solution that is proven with leading financial services firms. We are excited to see how well the cleverDome platform is being received as we revolutionize the way financial services firms connect with each other and their clients efficiently, quickly and securely.”

As a Senior Executive in the Healthcare Industry, he brings over 30 years of experience in leading organizations and their boards to the cleverDome executive leadership team.

CATCH UP IN PERSON AT THE T3 ENTERPRISE CONFERENCE
Gleghorn and cleverDome CEO Aaron Spradlin – along with numerous cleverDome Co-Op and Consortium members – will be available to speak with conference participants at Joel Bruckenstein’s T3 Enterprise event October 22-24, 2018. Look for them in the Exhibit Hall and on stage. Now in its 6th year, the T3 Enterprise Conference has become the leading enterprise-focused technology conference in the financial services industry.
“This annual gathering is specifically designed for heads of large financial advisory firms and executives from financial services firms (broker/dealers, OSJs, RIA advisor networks, trust companies, banks, etc.),” said Joel Bruckenstein, CFP®, producer of the T3 events, the T3 newsletter, the T3 Jobs Board and the T3 Virtual Exhibit Hall. “Enterprise delegates emerge from the 3-day conference with timely information and insights on building a technology-first financial services firm. The T3 Conference offers a robust agenda and slate of impressive speakers. Industry thought leaders and executives who attend the conference appreciate dialoging about challenges and opportunities within the financial services industry, networking, and sharing insights on how they are meeting company goals using applied technology.”
“I am especially looking forward to hearing InterGen’s Robert Kirk talk about pushing the AI envelope to create new digital wealth experiences while being enabled by industry leading military-grade encryption during his presentation on AI – Digital Disruption or Digital Disaster,” said Gleghorn. “Today’s firms are standing on the precipice of new digital wealth models that are being driven by artificial intelligence, third-party innovation, and technology accelerants that could lead to either tremendous growth or historical disaster. Whether you are pushing the envelope of adopting new technologies or deliberately taking a wait and see approach, our industry is moving ahead and transforming at an exponential rate. The fear of missing the boat is a reality, but so is the fear of doing the wrong thing. cleverDome is committed to being part of the solution.”
